    Thanks Neil for the link. I've never assembled a paper model but may have to try some of these.

    Only one missing is the Pegasus variant but that is in the pipeline.

    Great little site here, Neil! Lots of BSG options - and great ideas for scratch-building if one doesn't want to try paper modelling.

    I decided today to begin repainting my C-ROC cruiser - I started by spraying it GW Corax White...

    I like the look of the color and will now begin detail painting before eventually washing and drybrushing things - it's a gorgeous little model, but the khaki and brown original color just didn't quite work for me as a BSG Colonial Fleet member...it should be a fun project.

    By the way, the Pegasus is available from Moebius Models, as is the Galactica and Colonial One...

    All the best,
    Matt

    That is going to be a great ship Matt. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Moebius ones are pricey, hence my looking around for alternative options.

    Pricey, but worth it if you can get 'em cheap on ebay.................

    They are pricey, Neil - I agree...and getting them cheap on Ebay is also a good thing, Tim. My C-ROC was about the price of the Moebius models, but it was about MSRP, so I figured it was at least a fair price...

    I would love to try and kit-bash or scratch-build a couple of 'goofy-looking' ships that would fit the aesthetic of the fleet...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Printed off and cut out the Geminon traveller ship.

    Looks good. Colour on printer is poor as I need to replace ink.

    That said I'm going to construct this werk and I'll post a pic or 2 with a viper for comparison.

    Started blocking in some basic color on the light grey base coat of my repainted C-ROC cruiser - I figure it will become a passenger/freight ship of the rag-tag Colonial Fleet... I'm thinking it will be from the Leonis Colony, and I have found some cool insignia on a BSG Wiki, along with a nifty lion's head graphic that I plan to paint on the front nose of the ship.

    Just bought a C Roc for £19.95. Looking good for a civilian transport. Might use the smaller ship as a shuttle.

    Sounds like you got a better deal than I did, Neil! I hope you have fun with it - are you planning on repainting it or just using it as is?

    I am looking forward to getting several 'ersatz' ships from various sources to use in BSG games...

    All the best,
    Matt

    My eyes are not as good as they used to be so it will be used as is. Might look for some more 'Dark Side' stuff as big 'transports' and the like from other sources. Again I think Ares have missed a trick here by not bringing out a larger range than they have.

    C Roc safely docked today. Lovely little fighter/shuttle to go with it. Base's and some cards for home rule additions.
